Antarctic adventure calls Young explorer: Jamie Clarke, 22, spent three months living in Antarctica and helping to restore historical sites. Photo: JIMMY NESS By JIMMY NESS The Sir Peter Blake Trust is offer- ing a young explorer the once in a lifetime chance to spend three months in Antarctica. The winner will work for an environmental team at Scott Base or at other camps in which New Zealand is involved. Silverstream resident Jamie Clarke, 22, won last year's compe- tition. He joined the Antarctic Heritage Trust team carrying out restoration work on Sir Ernest Shackleton's Hut and Scott's Hut. Both the buildings were used a century ago to launch exploration missions toward the South Pole, Mr Clarke says. My main role was helping put in interference stands, which involved digging trenches around the hut. I think it's a fantastic opportunity. It was the realisation of a dream for me.'' Mr Clarke, who lived in a tent for 10 weeks, faced many exciting challenges including sub-zero temperatures and constant day- light, during the summer months. I was quite lucky, the first few days the weather was really nice. At times it did get quite cold but you do acclimatise to it. Constant daylight sort of messes with your head. It does take along time to get used to. You never know what time it is,'' Mr Clarke said. He would absolutely recom- mend'' the Antarctic adventure. The Sir Peter Blake Trust Ant- arctic youth ambassador compe- tition closes on Tuesday. Applic- ants must be aged between 18 and 25.

With him are, from left, Tylah-Anne Charles from Totara Park, and brothers Darren and Carter Taumata from Trentham. Tylah- Anne is a keen skater and part of a sporting family. She has been thinking about trying foot- ball at school. Both boys have played for Upper Hutt City foot- ball and are keen spectators at Phoenix matches. They are try- ing out rugby this season. Plenty of adults were there to give Her- bert their best wishes for the season. Photo: PETER McDONALD
